Right on!!!
Didn't Jerry say "That's not Pigpen, that's the Grateful Dead" ?!?

I do agree with the leaderless idea proposed here. The whole pre-song jam thing is VERY contrived and forced. The jam is pre-determined and doesn't come from any kind of inspiration.
Also, I think they're using the whole jam thing and the drums>space thing as a way to lengthen the shows, much as they did during the 93 thru 95 years. If you break each show down to the songs and the related jamming, the shows would be clocking in at less than two hours. You want me to pay over $100 for that? I got better things to do. Sorry if that offends anyone, but I am a GRATEFUL DEAD fan and this crap doesn't cut it.
